General :: Copying Text From Emacs Into Other Programs?

Jul 19, 2010

I want to copy part of a file I'm writing in emacs into, say a blog post or something like that. Putting the text into the kill ring doesn't allow me to paste it into another program. As it stands, I have to open the same file in gedit and copy/paste from there. Is there an easier way?

[Weirdly, it works fine the other way round: copying text off a SU answer, for example, I can paste that into emacs with C-y just fine...]

General :: Emacs Is How Much More Than Text Editor?

May 30, 2011

I was reading how you could browse the net with Emacs but then it was stated that it was done with another application like Firefox so this would imply that Emacs is an interpreter would it not? What is Emacs capable of? Is it an interpreter that runs a text editor?

General :: Cp Adds Exclamation Points When Copying Very Large Text Files?

Jul 13, 2009

For my research I have some very large files that are basically millions of lines of ten columns of numbers. These files can be up to 5 GB in size. Recently I noticed that when I made a copy of one of my files, some exclamation points appeared in it where there should not be any: in front of random numbers throughout the file. Making another copy of the file would result in exclamation points in front of different numbers in different parts of the file. Doing this many times has given me up to four exclamation points in different parts of the file. Sometimes the file copies just fine without producing any extraneous exclamation points.Additionally, I have occasionally seen a "^K" where there should be a newline (the data that should have been on the next line was instead on the previous line with a ^K in front of it) in copies that I have made of my files. I don't know if this is related or not.

Red Hat :: Copying Selected Text Using Vi?

Nov 20, 2010

how can i copy and paste selected text from one file to other using vi in RHEL5.i googled and found some methods,like just use m to mark the start, with an arbitrary buffer name (so you might type mx). Move your cursor down to where you want to stop copying, and type y'x (or d'x if you're cutting and pasting). Then move the cursor to the point where you want to paste, and type p. when i do this it pastes the entire line of which a part is selected so in essence it is working as yy. when i open a new file using vi and try to paste it says "nothing in register".what i exactly want to do is copy only the selected text as shown above in red and paste it in a new file.

Ubuntu :: Can't Select Text In Eterm For Copying/pasting?

Mar 3, 2010

I'm running Eterm, and Kubuntu (Karmic.) Anyway, I can't select text at all in the Eterm window. I can highlight the text with the mouse, but as soon as a let go of the button, the selection goes away. I mean, the text is still there, its just not highlighted anymore. As a result, I can't copy/paste that text. Have to run a different terminal program (like konsole, or xterm.)

Ubuntu :: Text Unreadable In Some Programs?

Feb 3, 2010

I've recently installed the program Sparky for processing NMR data. When I start the program the text is unreadable. For example the top left pull-down should be labeled 'File' and instead I only see the two horizontal dashes in the 'F' and the right 2/3 of the 'e'. Yet the banners above the windows are completely normal. I have occasionally had similar problems with Matlab, but it's intermitant and less severe

General :: Voice To Command & Text/command To Voice Programs?

Mar 14, 2011

Does anyone know of a commercial program that will run on openSUSE?I need something that is fairly user friendly, identifies individual voices, and does not require Wine. The machine is to be completely controlled by voice and would be programmed to issue vocals in response to vocal requests for what is in the various databases and I/O software, such as motion control and other sensor subsystems. In other words, a program that lends itself to AI robotics.I do not have the time to develop CMSphinx, and I am willing to pay. I have been on a few sites but they are cryptic as far as the technicals, which I do not fully understand anyway.

General :: How To Get A Decent Emacs Setup

Mar 11, 2011

I am currently interested in switching from vim to emacs.One of the more compelling reasons for this is the smooth integration with a unix environment. The most experienced emacs users I have seen have a bash prompt at the bottom of their window, with stdout going to a buffer right above it. They then interact with the output of programs such as grep in interesting ways.I am on Ubuntu 10.04 and the default emacs environment does not seem to do much for me in the way of integration. For example, in the M-x shell mode, output from basic commands like ls produce lots of strange characters and hitting the up arrow does not go to previous commands.

General :: How To Open Emacs In Its Own Window

Aug 20, 2010

I am doing some project work and for that using the server at college with ssh connection. Every time I try to open emacs on the terminal after connecting, it opens emacs in the terminal itself i.e. not its own window. On my laptop on which ubuntu is installed, emacs always opens up in its own window an thats how I am used to it. There are several problems when it opens in the terminal like when I try to use commands such as M-V, actually terminal's view menu opens up, its very frustrating. Also I am pretty sure that the college server runs on red hat and has X installed on it. So what do I need to do to get my emacs window back.

General :: Web Search Engines And Emacs / Vim

Nov 8, 2010

The facilities offered by any text editor to look for a string are highly superior to those offered by search engines such as that of Google or the one used by LQ>Search. To only speak of the most one elementary that comes to my mind, you can reach 'john smith' by searching with the string 'hn smi' in any decente editor, but I know of no search engine that offers this feature.

On the other hand, I have always heard of the power of Vim and Emacs. For instance, they say there is no thing Emacs cannot do. Lets advocate to the job of adding Google searches the ability to find 'john smith' by using 'hn smi' as the matching pattern. Or to add regular expression capabilities. Could I use Vim/Emacs to solve this problem?

A little light into the meaning of my words: It would be Vim/Emacs the one in charge of making the Internet connection, connecting to Google and send appropriate commands go Google. Then, to look for my string, I would be directly using Vim/Emacs which, upon receiving my commands, would send the appropriate ones to Google and return control to me.

General :: Loop Append Text To Text Files?

Jan 15, 2010

may be an advanced question but I need to know how to do this. Here at work I am in charge of recruiting and we have about 1,000 resumes in already. All of the resumes are in a .pdf format. I need to rename every .pdf in the following format:{firstnameLastname}.pdfThe only way I know how to do this is to convert all the .pdf files to text, extract the name out of the first few lines of text, import into excel, and then use VBA to rename the files in mass:Here is my logic so far:~Deskop/a = houses all the .pdfresumesOpen terminal: Code: cd ~/Desktop/afor f in *.pdf; do pdftotext -raw $f; done That will convert all of the preceding resumes into text filesNow I would like to append the name of the text file into the last line of the text file. So, for example, for Resume1.txt, I want to append "Resume1.txt" to the last line within Resume1.txt. So after I run the command I open Resume1.txt and on the last line within I want to see "Resume1.txt" on the last line, at the end of the resume.How can I do this? I would like to use a loop and have the terminal append the filename to the body of the text file until all of the have been appended.

General :: All Text In Text Editor Turned To Boxes?

Jul 17, 2009

I was trying to install GTK+-2.8.20, so I installed it's necessary dependencies in this order:

jpeg library
tiff library

And I was about to install the last dependency: ATK (Accessability Toolkit).I opened the Archive Manager to extract the "atk-1.26.0.tar.gz" file (yes, I'm still switching from Windows so I'm fond of GUI), but I noticed all the text in that window was boxes, like the □ type box for every letter of text.So instead I thought it wouldn't be a big deal, because the terminal and regular windows weren't screwed up.I opened a text file in gedit (reference to commands in terminal, such as how to extract files via terminal), but yet again all of the text was □-like boxes.
